Day 5 of no smokes, go me ... Really tempted to buy a packet tonight as home alone, it's freezing and I am bored. Yay I didn't go down the street, instead I took off my bra, and put my pj's on.

Hi. I am 49. I am on my 4th day of being on champix. Still smoking but have cut back. This is my 3rd time. But previously I didn't take the full course of the tablets as I thought I was strong enough but relapsed. Stinking to the whole 6 months course this time.
I have tried numerous times to quit but I believe mentally you have to be ready to quit - talking to others about there quit journey allows you put yourself in there shoes making it seem possible. Then it’s the constant thought of reminding yourself why you want to quit in the first place. It’s not easy but talking it out definitely helps I will try and try again until I can on day say no thanks ...
Thanks for the check in. Yes 3 days after countless attempts not getting ahead of myself but am feeling okay. This time I’m trying not to do too much and getting plenty of rest. On minute hour at a time.
This is my 3rd attempt this year...First time I gave up for a month, second for a fortnight...Wondering if I go for longer this time...
